Robredo travels to New York with family to attend daughter Jillian’s graduation

Vice President Leni Robredo departed Manila for New York City with her three daughters to attend her youngest child Jillian’s graduation and spend time with her family.

On Instagram on Saturday, Robredo's daughter Aika shared a video with her mother and siblings while on board a plane.

Despite the trip, the vice president maintained that she would be on top of the preparations for the launch of the Angat Buhay program, a non-government organization composed mostly of volunteers who ran her campaign during this year’s elections.

Robredo said the Office of the Vice President is also making preparations for the official turnover of the office.

Based on the partial unofficial tally of votes for president as of May 13 from data from the Comelec Transparency Media Server, Robredo has 14,822,051 votes compared to former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s 31,104,175 votes.

Senator Kiko Pangilinan, meanwhile, received 9,232,883 votes, while Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio had 31,561,948 in the vice presidential race, as per the same partial unofficial tally. —Richa Noriega/KG, GMA News
